Freshly Made Sketches 188 & Stamp Nation Spotlight Technique

Here's my card
It's for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches

I took a little liberty with the placement of the "flowers", replacing the flowers with balloons and instead of being all in a horizontal row, they are more scattered through the sentiment panel using a technique demonstrated by HeatherN at Stamp Nation where it is described as the spotlight technique.
The sentiment is stamped on the card base. It is also stamped on various colours of cardstock. 

I chose 3 balloons from this WPlus9 set and cut out various parts of the sentiment on the colour cardstock. The balloons are placed directly above the corresponding part on the card base. It almost looks like the balloons were stamped on the cardbase and the sentiment stamped on top.

Thanks for visiting
